Dear Friends and Family,

As some of you may know, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s  Disease  (PD) in 2012. I have always loved hiking and swimming and moving, and after the initial shock I vowed to keep that as an important part of my life.  Research shows that exercise is the one thing that can keep the progression of PD at bay.  Pilates, strength training, pole walking, swimming and now both Qi Gong and Tai Chi have become essential in my weekly routine. I am therefore very excited to be participating in Moving Day Silicon Valley, benefiting the National Parkinson Foundation on April 25, 2015. http://www.movingdaysiliconvalley.org

The event will take place in San Jose, CA and will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event for all ages and abilities. I am helping set up the Moving Tent and  organizing both Qi Gong and Tai Qi demonstrations. Last year I embarked upon a 9 month training to teach beginning Radiant Heart QI Gong, a daily practice which keeps me calm, centered and focused, and I am so grateful for now having this in my life. 

I am walking with the Women’s Parkinson Support Group. Meeting these amazing ladies at our monthly luncheons with their positive approach to life has made this difficult journey so much easier. Please consider being a part of my team or sponsoring me for the 3 mile walk, and I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved in this very important fundraiser.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your support means a lot to me.
